lyrics

FROM THE TIMES I HAVE IN MIND,
TIMES THAT WE HAVE SPENT BEFORE,
THE MORE WE TRIED THE MORE WE FAILED,
TO LEAVE THE FOX BEHIND

LATE NIGHT SESSIONS WHERE WE'D PLAY,
AND EVERYBODY THERE WOULD SAY,
"YOU'LL BE HERE 'TILL THE LIGHT OF DAY,
BEFORE YOU LEAVE THE FOX BEHIND"

SO SEARCH THE FIELDS, THE BARON LAND,
ONLY YOU CAN MAKE THAT STAND,
YOU KNOW WHAT WE NEED, WE KNOW WHAT THEY NEED,
AND WE NEED TO FIND A NEW PLACE,
TO LEAVE THE FOX BEHIND

SHE SAT GENTLY ON MY KNEE,
AND ASKED ME IF I'D LIKE TO SEE,
THINGS SHE SAID NO MAN HAD SEEN,
IF WE LEAVE THE FOX BEHIND

I SMILED AND WONDERED WHAT SHE COULD MEAN,
WHAT COULD NO MAN HAVE SEEN?
WE'D ALL SEEN THE CHURCH AND VILLAGE GREEN,
WHEN WE LEFT THE FOX BEHIND

CHORUS

BELIEVE AS YOU HIDE, BELIEVE AS YOU HIDE, BELIEVE,
LEAVE AS YOU RUN, SING AS YOU SING WHAT SHOULD NOT BE SUNG, NOW IT'S BEGUN,
YOU FEAR THE DIRT, AND YOU FEAR THE DARK, BUT YOUR FRIENDS WILL UNDERSTAND
YOUR FRIENDS WILL UNDERSTAND

CHORUS
